Fire is fatal to laundromats. One fire can ruin your business. However, dryers are designed to produce heat in order to remove moisture from clothes. Hence we have to pay extremely careful about the overheating issue in the commercial dryer such as Huebsch, Speed Queen, Dexter, and American Dryer.
Restricted airflow is the most common reason why clothes dryers are overheats. When there’s a blockage inside the chimney, the hot air will become trapped inside the drum where it creates a potential fire hazard.
A thermostat is designed to automatically turn off the heating element at high temperatures. If this component is broken or malfunctioning, the clothes dryer may be overheated.
When you have an overheating problem, you should try to replace your thermostat. You should also clean your chimney.
